However, some homeowners don’t really know what should be kept in safes. It’s important to know what these things are so you can maximize the benefits presented by a safe.

Things that should be Kept in Safes

Here’s a list of what should be kept in a home safe:


It’s always a good idea to have some cash at home for petty expenses or emergencies. However, cash shouldn’t be lying around the house or stored under mattresses etc.


While jewelry for “every day wear” is usually stored in a jewelry box, there is jewelry that is more of an investment than an accessory. This includes very expensive pieces that are only worn on very special occasions. It’s a very good idea to store them inside a safe when they are not in use.


It’s always a good idea to make sure that your firearms are in a safe place especially if you have kids around. There are gun safes as well as firearm cabinets that can help you with this and will still provide you with easy access when needed.

If you insist on having a handgun by your bedside drawer when you sleep at night, make sure that your other firearms are stored in your home  safe.

Family heirlooms

There’s a good chance that the family heirlooms in your possession have been passed down for several generations already and this is why it would be a shame to lose them.

The previous generations fully expect you to take care of them so you can pass them on to the next generation so include the family heirlooms on your list of what should be kept in safes.

Some common family heirlooms include jewelries, pictures, recipes, musical instruments and several others.


Important paperwork

A good safe not only helps protect your valuables from burglars, it can also help you protect your valuables from fire and water damage.

Important documents are not really friendly with these elements, so you have to make sure that you keep them in a safe for preservation.

Also, it allows you to make sure that all important documents are kept in a single place. Here are some important documents that should be kept in a safe:

  • Birth certificate
  • Marriage certificate
  • Passports
  • Wills
  • Deeds
  • Insurance policies
  • Titles of vehicles

Now that you know what should be kept in a safe, you can choose a home safe wisely.
